The American College Application Campaign® (ACAC) is a national effort to increase the number of first-generation and low-income students who pursue a postsecondary education. By removing the barriers that often prevent these students from applying to a postsecondary institution, ACAC ensures that all high school seniors complete at least one college application.
In 2016-2017, OCDE is working in partnership with the American Council on Education for the American College Application Campaign (ACAC), along with UC, CSU, AICCU and AVID Center. Orange County is part of the ACAC statewide pilot. The purpose of this campaign and increase the number of postsecondary applications (two-year, four-year, and/or trade school).
